Freedom of Speech Starts Early

pressfreedomMy buddy from Wenatchee just keeps amassing awards and recognition for his work in student journalism. That's certainly something to be proud of, but for their journalism program, it's nothing new. But his story about the recent censorship of the student newspaper at a high school in Everett, Washington definitely deserves your attention.

Two very bright young female editors are fighting the good fight. Read about it here.

Thanks for ringing the bell for freedom of expression! The students will present to the Everett School Board Tuesday night Nov. 15.

By the way, the image you used to accompany this post comes from a guide for scholastic free expression prepared by the Newspaper Association of America and the Student Press Law Center. I only mention it in detail because I am mentioned and quoted in the guide.

By the way, the Student Press Law Center is just $1 million away from its goal of raising $2.5 million for an endowment as part of the Tomorrow's Voices campaign. Every dollar helps, and each one means another 50 cents in matching funds from the Knight Foundation.

Keep fighting the good fight!
